We are still mourning the recent loss of the McLaren 570S which was burnt to the crisp when it smashed into the house in the UK.
And now distressing images have emerged of what might as well be the graveyard of burnt out Porsches in Germany. And unlike the McLaren incident, this was no accident.
RT reports that the Porsche dealership in Hamburg was the target of the possible arson attack believed to be linked to this week’s Group of Twenty summit. 10 Porsches perished in the attack, another two were badly damaged in the blaze.
The fire erupted at 3:55 am local time. 38 firefighters tackled a blaze, but they were unable to prevent a fire from spreading to the sports vehicles.
According to NDR, Porsche estimates that a fire has caused over 1 million Euros ($1.3 million) worth of damage. Police are fearing that the fire was the deliberate attack linked to the upcoming G20 summit, and which will see around 100,000 protesters gather.
A video shows aftermath of the fire which destroyed the variety of Porsche models, from Cayennes and Boxsters, to brand new 911s.
It is painful to watch if you are the Porsche enthusiast. While customers who were eagerly awaiting the delivery of their brand-new Porsche won’t be pleased, and at least no one was hurt in the attack.
